Interests

Research interests

I am a PhD student at Royal NIOZ Netherlands Institute for Sea Research & University of Groningen, under the supervision of Theunis Piersma and Jan van Gils. My office is at the NIOZ, Texel, The Netherlands, but my prime area of interest for my PhD are the intertidal mudflats of Barr Al Hikman in the Sultanate of Oman. We have been visiting this relatively pristine mudflat area since 2008, and returned every year. First as a group of adventurous volunteers, but since 2011 under the umbrella of the NIOZ.
